Scripture: It is not good to have zeal without knowledge, nor to be hasty and miss the way. (Proverbs 19:2)
Prayer: God, increase my passion for you, deepen my understanding. Forgive me for the times I go my own way because I haven’t taken the time to seek your wisdom.
Reflection: It is a great thing to be excited about God! Over everything else, we ought to be most excited about him. There is no substitute for wisdom, excitement isn’t enough to life the Christian life. We need to add discernment to our good intentions or we will miss the way that God has set before us.
